The 40-year-old Millsboro, Delaware woman had been in jail since this past June and was being held for multiple drug-related offenses, including trafficking in opium/heroin.

Graham was given a $250,000 secured bond. The 29-year-old woman was arrested last year for possession of stolen goods and aiding and abetting larceny after Kinston police said she and a man stole items from a nightclub.

State records show Graham was convicted in 2018 for possession of Schedule II controlled substances and served three months in state prison.
